International Teacher Training: Mainstreaming Diversity and Inclusion

The DAAD project ‘International Teacher Training: Mainstreaming Diversity’ seeks to enable all students of the Department of Pedagogy and Educational Sciences to gain international and transcultural experiences and insights. For this purpose, the Department, in cooperation with the International Office and the Centre for Teacher Education at the University of Bremen, seeks to establish a number of measures for internationalisation to make it easier for students to go abroad and to internationalise teaching in the department.
